Our Shop & Store-room


Our shop is located at No 9 Wickham Street, Limerick V94 N4FY and is open from 10am – 4:30pm Monday through Saturday.

We sell school books, uniforms, regular clothes and books, household items and bric a brac.

The aim of the shop is to be an outlet for lower priced school books, uniforms and supplies and also household goods and clothes for those who need them.

Secondary to this, any surplus income from the shop is reinvested into the charity’s other projects such a homework club and working on adult workplace education. 

The charity shop & store room is managed by a small number of professionals, assisted by a number of volunteers and by community employment trainees. 


Our store room and office is located at Unit 1, the Tait Business Centre, Lady’s Lane, Dominic Street, Limerick, V94 83V1. 

This is our donation drop off centre which is open between 10am – 2pm Monday through Friday. Parking is available.
